any kind of primer you can use but the best for that idea is use rustolem i thank thats it but you can also use and this would be your best bet you have the water based law there use etch primer and then ne other auto based will work but lay the etch first no matter what.3m is the best and you dont have to put a lot on it just one even coat will do this keeps water out and bonds to ne thing it touches.
